I have lost a sweet pickle recipe. This is what I remember: Cut cucs in 1 inch chunks, put into 1 gal jar, add _ cup salt and cover with vinegar. Turn every week for 30 days.
Then drain vinegar, Do not wash cucs and add _ tablespoons of pickling spice and _ cups of sugar ( I think it is 2 cups?) Return to shelf and turn every week for 90 days. Does anyone recognize this recipe and know the correct measurements? They were wonderful.

sounds about right tom, there's generally twice as much sugar as vinegar. if they're sweet/sour, that's close enough. add enough salt to the water to float an egg.

as a kid, my grampa fermented vats of cucumbers in salt brine, and we'd load them by hand(well basket) in a boxcar. 3 of their car vats held 1 of the factory vats. they made sweet pickles from the fermented ones too, and boy i liked dill/garlic pickles.
